[Mauiusers] Possible problem with jobs in idle getting reservation incorrectly

Hi!

I just noticed a slightly weird situation.

We have a user running jobs in account X which has a MAXPS set.
He had 2 jobs in Idle which together with the already running jobs in
that account violates SOFT MAXPS. Both these jobs had reservations to
start within the limits of violation on SOFT MAXPS.

Shouldn't only one of them have gotten a reservation to start?

The net effect of that "extra" reservation was that some other jobs
start was delayed.

When the first of these 2 jobs was actually started the second was
correctly returned to BLOCKED.


On a side note:
We have
RESERVATIONPOLICY       HIGHEST
RESERVATIONDEPTH        5
RESERVATIONRETRYTIME    02:00

But the queue had 10 reservations for jobs in Idle....

Bug somewhere?
